Joining a private cruise is definitely one of the must-do experiences and a perfect way to explore all the hidden spots of Santorini.

The Private Trimaran Cruise with the first and only racing trimaran Orma 60, “Akron Aoton”, offers a unique sailing experience at high levels and amazing speed. This is what its name declares, meaning ‘’the highest point’’ in Ancient Greek.

Get ready to experience the real sailing and explore the beautiful caldera of Santorini with your very own chartered trimaran.

This extraordinary boat performs two caldera cruises, a 4-hour Day Cruise and a 4-hour Sunset Cruise, and sails around the popular Greek island, allowing visitors to take in famous sights. Both cruises start from Vlychada port, on the south part of the island. After cruising past the famous Red Beach and White Beach, you will set sail for Akrotiri village where you will admire its adorable Venetian lighthouse and an interesting rock formation on the caldera called Indian Rock. Next, after passing Aspronisi, you will reach the impressive Volcano of Santorini. It’s a unique sight that you will have the chance to see up-close and feel the wild atmosphere around it.

As the cruise continues, you will reach the small fishing port of Ammoudi, below the picturesque village of Oia, where you will surely become mesmerized by the fascinating view all around you, before returning back to Vlychada port, where the cruise ends.

During both cruises, you will be provided with snacks and fruits, as well as unlimited free local wine, beers, and soft drinks. For the curious divers, snorkelling equipment is provided, in order to explore the beautiful underwater world of Santorini.

Before the end of the Private Sunset Cruise, get ready for the highlight of the tour – the captivating sunset of Santorini – a breathtaking spectacle to relish on board in the middle of the sea.

Our Captain Yiannis has a lot to share about the sea and our beautiful island of Santorini and will ensure that you have the time of your life and gain an unforgettable experience.

An Experience I will not forget

The sunset boat cruise was amazing. The views, the food, the company, the sunset were all spectacular. We got to stop at some cool places to have a swim. The dinner that was provided was amazing. I would recommend this to anyone who has a special occasion or just wants to experience something different.
